Second Debate Sets Up Romney Win

Romney emerges from the second debate well positioned to win it all. The post-debate polling reflects that he solidly won on the key issues: economy, energy prices, and China. Obama scores well in his overall ratings in these surveys simply because he benefits by comparison with his sleep-walking performance in the first debate.

Fundamentally, Romney’s smooth, polished, dignified, articulate, sincere, and compassionate manner in the debate puts to rest eight months of Obama negative attacks on his character. Barack Obama is about to learn the lesson Jimmy Carter learned in 1980 when he lost to Reagan — and found his lead collapsing after the debates. When a president with a failed record tries to win by attacking and demonizing his opponent, he can succeed only if there are no debates. Since neither Goldwater (1964) nor McGovern (1972) had the chance to show themselves to America in debates, the negative characterization of them by first Johnson and then Nixon stuck. But Ronald Reagan’s debate performance nullified Carter’s attacks and showed him not to be the war-mongering madman the president had accused him of being. Similarly, Obama’s portrayal of Romney as insensitive, elitist, incapable of understanding the problems of the average person, a tax cheat, and a cold blooded capitalist all fell before Romney’s real persona as it came through on television.

And once Obama is stripped of his negative messaging, he has nothing to say. His defense of his economic record and his energy drilling essentially boiled down to asking people what they wanted to believe — their own eyes or Obama’s speeches.

Stylistically, Romney’s dignity played very well. He struck just the right balance between letting Obama walk over him (as Ryan let Biden do) and being obnoxious and petty (as Obama appeared to be).

The Romney campaign has exactly the right ads on the air to exploit their debate edge. The sixty second ad they now are running in swing states, featuring Romney’s first debate narrative on the economy played over faces of Americans suffering from economic distress is just the right move.

Specifically, Romney:

1) Explained his tax plan very well. His suggestion that he would allow up to a flat $25,000 in deductions was excellent.

2) Recited the statistics of economic decline so well and so frequently that they will be repeated again and again by voters as they contemplate their decision.

3) Clearly pinned the blame for high gas prices on Obama by enumerating the president’s anti-oil, anti-coal policies.

4) Put the China issue in play big time by explaining Chinese currency manipulation. In the next debate, Romney should drill down and explain how much Chinese chicanery and hacking costs us jobs and how passive Obama has been in the face of their conduct.

5) Demonstrated his compassion and heart in his personal stories of his ministry. He should continue just this kind of argumentation.

And then there’s Libya. The intervention of Candy Crowley saved Obama on the ropes. But as inappropriate as it was, her statement — that Obama said at the outset that it was a terror attack — was technically correct, but, ultimately wrong. We all know that Obama tried to play the attack as a rally gone awry, impelled by passion generated by a film about Islam. WE heard him say so on The View, on Letterman, at the United Nations and all over the nation for two weeks.

Romney should explain that the president’s goal was not to interfere with his narrative that by killing bin Laden, he had ended al Qaeda as a terrorist organization. He did not want an attack and an assassination on his record in the last two months before the election. So he pretended that it was all because of an intemperate movie. He should cite the statements of the State Department that they never considered it a terrorist attack.

Republican nominee Mitt Romney took his biggest lead yet in today's Gallup daily tracking poll, expanding his lead over President Barack Obama to an astounding 6 points among likely voters.
Obama's approval rating stayed at 49 percent, which is below the "safe" 50 percent threshold for an incumbent's re-election.

By Gallup's historical standards, it would take a truly historical comeback at this point for Obama. Since Gallup started tracking in 1936, the only eventual president to mount a comeback down 6 points on Oct. 17 was Ronald Reagan. Reagan, however, was behind 6 points among registered voters.

Dems Try to Hide Medicare Cuts Until After the Election

If ObamaCare’s Cuts to Medicare Are Really Just “Savings,” Then Why Are Democrats Spending Money to Try to Hide Them Until After the 2012 Election?

Democrats have struggled to explain away ObamaCare’s cuts to Medicare, which Democrats have tied themselves into knots insisting are actually just “savings.”

Even as Democrats deny their cuts to Medicare, Democrats are spending billions of taxpayer dollars to hide them until after the 2012 election.

The fact is that ObamaCare’s Medicare cuts mean that as many as half of all seniors could lose their Medicare advantage benefits.

I see you're still shitting your pants and now it's coming out of your mouth.

Romney doesn't need Ohio to win. There are so many different combinations your mind is incapable of understanding.

Obama is out and Romney is in. You can deny it all you want, it won't change a thing.

We already have our victory party planned and we're ready to celebrate. We are predicting Romney will be declared an early winner. Watch out bobby64, a landslide is coming. lol

“This President has failed America’s women,” Romney thundered at a rally in Virginia.

“They’ve suffered in terms of getting jobs,” he said.“They’ve suffered in terms of falling into poverty.”

The battle for women’s votes came as a new Gallup Poll showed Romney leading Obama, 51% to 45%, among likely voters — a stunning reversal of the President’s political fortunes, in part because female supporters have been slipping away.

“Right click Left click Yay!”

Ahh, the same 716 billion that Ryan also uses for his plan?

As long as you are retired now, you get Medicare. But I'm not and all he is promising me is a coupon for my healthcare.

Sounds great! Now I don't need to cut it out of the paper!

I've worked for 30+ years involuntarily paying into the system and now the GOP is threatening to take it away and promising me a "voucher"?

Ryan's supposedly a numbers wonk. Why can't he make it work?

Well, Romney did say that he's gonna create so many jobs that business will need to bite the bullet and hire women. The job creators will have to give a little - they'll need to cut a woman loose so she can get home to make dinner. But she can make up the time later that evening.

CBS News/ October 17, 2012, 3:11 PM

Fact-checking Romney's "binders full of women" claim
According to MassGAP, the group approached the gubernatorial candidates of both parties prior to the 2002 election and asked each to sign a pledge committing to make their "best efforts" to "ensure that the number of women in appointed state positions is proportionate to the population of women in Massachusetts," to "select a transition team whose composition is proportionate to the women in the Commonwealth;" and to "meet with MassGAP representatives regularly during the appointments process."

Thus, Romney's suggestion Wednesday night that he organically noticed a dearth of women applicants when filling his cabinet and subsequently decided to "go out and find women who had backgrounds that could be qualified to become members of our cabinet," is false". The process had been spearheaded by an independent group and was already well under way by the time he was governor.

Some have also pointed out that Romney's record hiring women to top positions during his tenure at Bain Capital was lackluster: According to the Boston Globe, there were no women partners at Bain during the 1980s and 1990s, when Romney was CEO.

By contrast, over a quarter of President Obama's initial cabinet appointees were women. In the current Obama administration, eight of 23 - or 35 percent - of the president's cabinet or cabinet-rank positions are women.
